The sale of the first copy of a new model with a VIN 001 vincode was put up for auction today, under which very emotional and rapid trading took place. Proceeds from the sale of the car will go to charity.

Apparently, the very first collection car is the best collection car. Therefore, it is not surprising that in the framework of the Barrett-Jackson charity auction, 1,100,000 dollars were earned for the first Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 2020. A distinctive feature of the first car in the series is the VIN 001, as well as the unique body color.

According to official information, all the proceeds from the sale of the car will go to the JDRF charity that is engaged in studying diabetes, as well as finding a cure. The winner was Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. That is, he won the auction at his own Barrett-Jackson car collector auction house in Scottsdale.

 “The chance to become the owner of the first Ford Shelby GT500 of 2020 is an opportunity that is given only once in a lifetime,” – said Joe Hinricks, president of Ford. “An even more important opportunity is to participate in fundraising for very important goals.”

During the auction, the car was accompanied by Edsel B. Ford II and Aaron Shelby, grandson of the legendary Carroll Shelby.

In the meantime, the Ford Everest large frame SUV in the updated version is preparing for the start of sales. The car belongs to the 2019 model year and will be offered to buyers in late January.
